“Great Break”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

After seeing some of the reviews we were a bit concerned however we needn't have been.

We were running in the Colour Run on Saturday morning but had booked late so very few rooms were available, Strawberry Fields were happy to accommodate us, I was a bit worried when we arrived as we were covered in paint but the staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean and well appointed, plenty of tea and coffee, which for the break we wanted was perfect.

We had a lovely sea view, the only thing I would say is that I struggled to sleep with the noise from the road outside but I live in a village where the only sound I hear is occasionally the owl so most people wouldn't even notice it.

We'd be more than happy to stay here again.

What a great fun event the 'colour run' is proving to be - it's one of the most popular events in the city and a riot of colour and fun.

Thank you for taking the time to review and we are so pleased you enjoyed your time here.

We recommend the use of ear plugs to prevent the Sea Gulls from disturbing your sleep - they make quite a racket.

Hope to see you next time

We stayed one night at Strawberry Fields, but their customer services went well beyond 24 hours. I had ordered tickets for a concert, but they were not shipped until after I left the US for a UK visit. Strawberry Fields was glad to have the tickets shipped to their hotel, and they were waiting for me when I arrived. We accidentally left a cashmere sweater at the hotel, and they shipped it to the US, at a cost of 15 pounds, but they declined my offer to pay for the shipping! All of this took a lot of back and forth on email, all of which the handled in a really courteous and friendly manner.

The rooms were comfy, reasonably priced (even in summer) and the location is right near the ocean. I highly recommend Strawberry Fields!

We stay overnight with my boyfriend and had lovely en-suite room with sea view. It was actually even closer to the sea that I though. Room clean, staff nice and helpful and best thing were definitely breakfast in bed lovely presented in the basket and tasty. We will probably go back and we recommend it to stay there.

Thank you for your super review!

We are blessed with a fantastic location, just a hop and a skip to the beach and the city centre.

Come back and try out our new 'breakfast in bed' menu. Also we have now partnered with a great Cafe just a two minute walk away, who offer gorgeous indulgent organic breakfasts at specially discounted rates to Strawberry Fields guests.

Come back soon

Just enjoyed a really nice weekends stay @ Strawberry Fields. A great location very close to the seafront and (if your room allows) a great view onto the gardens to the front of the building.

All the staff seemed happy, friendly and helpful, particularly the main receptionist.

OK there is no dining/breakfast room, but that is made clear at the time of booking. To be honest having the option to have breakfast in bed is a lovely treat if it's something you don't normally do at home.

The room booked was a top floor double with shared toilet and shower rooms. The room itself was cosy, and the shower room was bit space limited. You might want to consider booking an en-suite if you require more room whilst towelling off.

The room was serviced each of the three days booked, which included a Sunday.

We booked with Laterooms and got a lovely double room ensuite overlooking the rooftops. I am from Brighton so am well versed in the sounds of the seaside, the diversity of the delightful local cafes and the availability of nearby vibrant nightlife. It was just what we wanted, yet the square outside is pleasant, with Regency architecture. Perfectly Brighton. The staff were helpful, and we didn't need breakfast or any dining room (as with many local hotels they provide food on request). You are in the heart of the cafe/pub culture and the famous all night market diner, so go and explore for breakfast, lunch and tea. Close to the pier and beach. Great location. Would stay there again. Good toiletries and very comfortable sleep. Take ear plugs if you don't like seagull cries, for me that's part of the seaside. Highly recommended for being in the heart of things.

Room Tip: Like all Regency houses the house is tall and thin, although it is two houses knocked together. So t...

Hi Judy

Location, Location, Location - you are bang on with your review of Strawberry Fields - we are right in the heart of the city and those pesky gulls wake early!

We count ourselves experts in all the city has to offer so talk to us about those 'hidden gem' shops in the North Laine or where to get the best Cappuccino west of Rome (red Roaster...).

Thank you for your lovely comments

Having booked this hotel which is expensive I was expecting a full breakfast like you normally get in a hotel but on arrival I was told they do not cook any food and have not even got a dining room, I have stayed in hotels all over the world and never before have a found one like this it is a hostel not a hotel .So when you wake up in the morning you got to go to some back street cafe for your breakfast (Joke) basically the greedy owners have got rid of the dining room so they can rent more rooms to unlucky customers.Also my room was at the front and I got no sleep whatsoever as the traffic from the seafront is howling along all night.Do yoursellf a favour and find somewhere else.The staff were friendly but that does not compensate for lack of facilities which the customer needs.

Dear Mr Smith

I'm so sorry that you were unaware that we offer our rooms on a room only basis to give our guests the choice of ordering 'breakfast in bed' (a basket of bacon baguette or smoked salmon bagels, juice and fruit - at an additional £5) or popping out to one of the 15 local cafe and delicatessen outlets that are within a five minute walk from us.

Clearly this has affected your view of the value we offer and I do hope you will reconsider and return to us in the near future.

Best wishes
Sharon

My husband wasn't feeling well . We wanted to cancel the booking they refused. We wanted to minimise the days . Refused again. Charged all the money at check inn, rooms are not ensuite and me being a frequent traveller booked a double room. Really horrible no sinks in the washroom and good luck trying to take a bath. Did not know it was not ensuite I have never stayed in such a hotel that didnt specify that. This is a hostel but not a place for couple to stay. Sour manger with no sympathy will never stay here again

Room Tip: Don't go for this

As this review is the result of these guests dissatisfaction with LateRooms policy rather than our service and facilities, here at Strawberry Fields, it is therefore a bit disappointing to receive.

This was a prepaid '2nd night half price' offer through LateRooms on one of our budget 'attic' small double rooms with a shared bathroom. When on the day before arrival the guest contacted me to cancel, I explained that as it was a prepaid 'LateRooms' booking the guest must contact them to cancel - as they will still charge their commission fees. As it was inside the cancellation period this was refused by them and the guest stayed with us.

On checking in, as it was clear that they were dismayed to be holding a reservation for a room with shared bathroom, we offered them a complimentary upgrade to the next category or the alternative of a fully en-suite room at a £10 supplement - they viewed all three rooms and chose the complimentary upgraded one.

We provide a full description of all of rooms and are pleased to be able to offer a range of rates to suit all budgets, the room booked, is described on the LateRooms (and our website) as 'Small Double room - Double Bed, Not en-suite - Shared bathroom. Top Floor, Flat screen TV with freeview, WiFi, Tea and Coffee facilities.'
